Glad to hear you are enjoying your new purchase The Quiet1.

I have converted someone ! Zootlesque is only partly converted, but he will come round too

Ok, I have decided that my next album purchase may be a Moz record. I have Vauxhall and I - where should I go next?

@ LA twins: did you ever said something to him??? Or doesn't he won't to be disturbed (hmmmm, in doing nothing I guess! ).

No, we never have. He was sitting with friends. You know what was very interesting, he was looking at everyone in the bar (his table was in the corner). It seems as though he loves watching people. He seemed really cool...

So out of interest, how did all you Smiths fans in this thread get into them? What is it that you love about them? In fact, go nuts. Tell me your favourite song/lyric/album. How old were you when you first became a fan? Has been a Smiths fan given you a new found love for Chrysanthemums and Gladiolas?

Tell me as much or little as you'd like, I really would be interested to know.

It must have been 85/86 because my cousin had loaned me Meat is Murder. I was already a U2 fan and The Smiths were the lyrical/musical opposite end of the spectrum for me. The lyrics were the first thing that hooked me; very direct at times, but also poetic, sad and humorous. I bought Queen is Dead when it came out and also fell in love with Louder Than Bombs after that. They quickly became my second favorite band and still are. I also like flowers.

Some of the videos are very good - especially Every Day is like Sunday and Suedehead.

When i was at college about 3 years ago a girl i met reccomended them. They were her favourite band and i hadn't heard anything by them. She gave me a list of a few songs to download. i downloaded This Charming Man and How Soon Is Now. i really liked them and bought their 'Best Of' with the guy with the glasses on the front for £5 from the amazon.co.uk bargain bin god knows why it was in there, i wasn't complaining though! Best £5 i've ever spent!

Since then i've been getting more and more into them. I've got The Queen Is Dead, Meat Is Murder and Rank so far. Well I Wonder is my favourite Smiths song. Just beautiful

Well, it's been around 99 (very late I know - but they founded the group when I wasn't even born! ) when I saw the charming man video.... I loved it sooooo bad. Moz is just great and he had me with the first look....but it took another 3 years till I bought the first album..... Well, even before I bought a Photobook of the Smiths.... which is pretty cool (Made my own Moz t-shirt!!! ) Now I have a few Smiths and 2 moz cds.... Bought the ROTT today and have to listen to it closely to tell an opinion.... although I lOVE the music. At least that's what I can tell....!

I can't remember the first time I heard one of The Smiths songs, though I can remember being introduced to them properly at college (back in '93). Somebody made me a tape with some of their better know stuff on it (Panic, There is a Light..). It was more the sound than the lyrics that got me hooked initially.

Did anyone catch Moz on 4music being interviewed by Edith Bowman the other night? He did some tracks off the album plus Still Ill. It was pretty clear from his comments that The Smiths had the mother of all fall outs when they split up!

Another Smiths/Morrisey fan here

I got into them straight from the start really it's hard to pick a favourite as they're all so amazing but meat is murder almost did make me turn into a veggie, but i love eating it too much to stop!

I remember seeing them on TOTP&The Tube and stuff and i was trying to get into the music but my mum kept asking ' that's the guy who has the gladis in his back pocket isn't it?'!!!!

It's such a pity about no likely re-union

To be honest i don't want to see a re-union. All of the members are into their 40's now and i think it would all be a bit sad, not to mention the fact they'll all probably get paid big bucks to do it as well. And Morrissey has a successful solo career to be getting on with too.

well im a recent fan, about 2-3 years really. I was DJing at an event and one of the other DJ's played a remix of Asleep (yes, very weird song choice for it! hahaha) and i was like what was that? I then downloaded Asleep..fell in love with it and it snowballed from there. Some of the smiths songs i recognised and others i just adores. They now are my second favourite band after u2 and i can't explain how much i adore their lyrics and moz's VERY unique voice...
as for favourite song well alsepp, then unloveable, shoplifters of the world unite, the boy with the thorn in his side, vicar in a tutu, please please please let me get what i want, stop me if you think you've heard this one before and a billion others

i LOVE the boy with a thorn in his side lyrics

How can they look in to my eyes and still they don't believe me, how can they hear me say those words and still they don't believe me

and heaps more, i'll come back and list them! hhaa

Just got back from Amsterdam. Saw him yesterday in concert and it was excellent. Lots of songs from his new album, some Smiths tunes (Still ill, Girlfriend in a coma, How soon is now and Last night I dreamt..), and others..
Now waiting for Pinkpop..
